1 week and 1 day!

Ellison is over a week old today! We can't believe how fast time has flown by already. She has changed so much and is starting to smile, stay awake for periods at a time and she is growing! She has had many visitors- her Aunt Sarah got to meet her for the first time a couple of days ago and mommy's best friend Jennifer came to stay a few nights. Mommy was able to go out to dinner and get out of the house for the first time with Jennifer while daddy and Aunt Sarah took care of Ellison. Ellison also celebrated her first St. Patrick's Day and dressed up for the occassion. Motherhood and staying at home is so rewarding but it is definitely no vacation- it truly is a job in itself. Nobody can truly prepare you for what to expect. Connor has been so wonderful and I absolutely love watching him interact with his daughter. He is so patient, gentle and so in love with her. We are going to take our first walk outside today because it is so gorgeous. The doodles are home and they are so into Ellison, especially Copper. I hope everyone has a great weekend and Easter holiday!
